(Blake Shelton’s Makeup Trailer) Trailer chassis was refurbished in 2017 at Colin Hyde Restorations in Upstate NY. Colin replaced the axles and wheels, replaced the original tongue structure and coupler and installed a stabilizing hitch/towing system.

Trailer was then delivered to SoCal Vintage Trailer in San Diego where it was retrofitted into a Hollywood make-up trailer. We stripped it to the shell and replaced all interior structure, wiring, and plumbing, installed new spray foam insulation in walls and ceiling, new birch interior wall and ceiling panels with hand-rubbed finish, LED lighting, refurbished all windows and hardware, door hardware, and installed two rooftop air conditioners with combined 28,500 BTU cooling. All new fresh and wastewater systems and tanks were installed. We fabricated and installed a custom, full-size stainless steel shower, and tiled bathroom. All electrical systems were replaced with new including shore power, a 60-amp converter, and marine-grade wiring for 12-volt and 120-volt systems. The exterior was polished and a 22-foot by 8-foot motorized armless awning with integrated LED lighting was installed using custom-fabricated mounting hardware and reinforcement in the walls and roof. Before installation, the metal awning case was custom-painted silver to better match the exterior of the Spartan (it is only sold in black or white).

In 2022, after the sale of the trailer to the current owner, we redesigned and extensively remodeled the interior with new cabinets, countertops, vintage-look new appliances, farmhouse ceramic kitchen sink, bath and kitchen fixtures, hardwood hickory flooring, bathroom tile, upholstery, and window coverings. At that time, all of the systems work we did in 2017 was checked and if necessary refreshed or upgraded. All fabrics used in the interior are from high-end designers and wholesalers. All upholstery used new foam, dacron, and zippers.

Restored windows, hardware, and screens. Exterior trim work- all trim restored, repaired or replaced.
